Social Worker and Founder of the August Town Peace Builders, Kenneth Wilson, is calling for there to be a sustained presence of the security forces in the crime-plagued community.

His call comes after one man was killed and another seriously injured yesterday, as violence erupted in the community again.

The Police later arrested twelve people, including a wanted man during a joint military operation.

Mr Wilson says only intense policing can renew a sense of hope and freedom of the people.

He says the security forces and social intervention activists are making strides in addressing the rampant criminality in August Town. But, Mr Wilson notes that there are challenges.

He’s also chiding young persons who chose to engage in criminality, to their detriment.
